Mahatma Gandhi

Indian nationalist leader Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, more commonly known as Mahatma Gandhi, was born on October 2, 1869, in Porbandar, Kathiawar, India. He studied law in London, England, but in 1893 went to South Africa, where he spent 20 years opposing discriminatory legislation against Indians. He won freedom for the country with the weapon of truth and non-violence. As a pioneer of Satyagraha, or resistance through mass non-violent civil disobedience, he became one of the major political and spiritual leaders of his time. A man who changed the course of the future of India with his ideas of non violence and political and religious peace was unfortunately shot by a fanatic in 1948.
